No custom biome option when creating a world? No problem! Pick your own biome (or special feature) from one of the "insta" seed categories farther below, then type in that number for the "Seed" under "Advanced". These seeds work for Minecraft Pocket Edition version 0.9.0+ and Windows 10 Edition, infinite world type.

Featured Minecraft PE / Windows 10 Seed 1301: Jungle + Temple
[Hidden bonus with the above Insta-Seed: We found a large abandoned mineshaft hidden underneath and slightly left (south) of the desert temple!]

An "insta" seed is one in which the desired biome or feature is instantly seen from the spawn point, facing west (default spawn direction). They are based specifically on the seed thumbnail views from the robo generator.

Minecraft PE 'birch forest' insta-seed
Birch Forest

Biome. Most forests are oak/birch combinations, but occasionally you will find an all-birch forest. Frequency: 4.8% (3.9%)

Minecraft PE 'cave' insta-seed
Cave

Feature. Caves are found almost everywhere and are an important part of the game. For the purpose of this Insta-Seed, I chose only "picturesque" views where a cave opening is prominently visible. Though there is no way to tell by the screenshot alone how deep the cave is, having a prominent cave near the spawn point would make a great (easy to find) home base, especially if you are lucky to find coal ore inside. Frequency: 1.7%

Minecraft PE 'double village' insta-seed
Double Village

Structure. See also "Village". Triple villages are known to exist (e.g., seeds 1226 and 1289) but I have not yet found a triple village in an Insta-Seed (this would be extremely rare). Frequency: 0.13%

1714 1715 1896

Minecraft PE 'extreme hills insta-seed
Extreme Hills

Biome. Characterized by high altitude and/or mountainous terrain, often with strange rock formations. Underneath (in deep layers), emerald ore is always present. Because villager trading STILL isn't implemented, this is the only place to get these beautiful emeralds. Frequency: 12.1% (8.9%)

Minecraft PE 'flower forest' insta-seed
Flower Forest

Biome Variant. Officially this is a variant of the forest biome with few trees and an abundance of various kinds of flowers. Appearance-wise, it looks more like plains with a large cluster of flowers in an area. Great place to get flowers and dyes for decorating. Frequency: 0.36% (0.45%)

1055 1326 1381 1422 2236 2691 2735 2861

Minecraft PE 'lake' insta-seed
Lake

Feature. For this insta-seed, I only chose "prominent" lakes not connected to any river. (Otherwise, lakes and ponds are fairly common.) Frequency: 0.76%

Minecraft PE 'marbled gravel hills' insta-seed
Marbled Gravel Hills

"Undocumented" Biome Variant. As of version 0.11.x, a portion of the extreme hills biome areas now render with gravel. Some mountains are now all gravel-covered, and flatter areas are mostly gravel with some grass veins weaved through it. This is possibly a pocket version exclusive. Frequency: 0.67%

Minecraft PE 'mesa' insta-seed
Mesa

Biome. Beautiful biome containing red sand, colored clay, and mesas. Rare, but when found the biome is usually very large. Frequency: 0.58% (0.85%)

1143 1150 1153 1524 1579 2253 2330 2638 2773 2922 2927 3185 3338

Minecraft PE 'mushroom island' insta-seed
Mushroom Island

Ultra rare biome. Only place to find mooshroom cows. Generates as either an island or peninsula. I've searched over 2,000 insta-seeds in the last 2 months and haven't yet found one; leave it to my son to find a perfect mushroom island insta-seed by accident! Super, super lucky! Frequency: TBD (0.050%)

Minecraft PE 'plains' insta-seed
Plains

Biome. One third of all Insta-Seeds show some plains, so you probably don't need a seed. In the following list, I've only chosen some of the much larger plains biomes (where other biomes are not visible). You might want to choose one of these if you plan to battle a lot of hostile mobs and want a good view of them. Or maybe you just need a lot of open space for a creative project. Frequency: 38.2% (9.8%)

Minecraft PE 'v bend in river' insta-seed
River "V"

Biome variant. Steve spawns at a sharp hairpin "V" bend in a river, facing the two forks. Interestingly, this scenario happens often enough that it's worth cataloging. There seems to be something special about the "V". Perhaps it is because you're just starting your adventure and you are given a choice... do you go left, or go right? (In descriptive seed 1289, one branch leads to a huge mesa with a triple village, the other just snow, snow, snow.) The "V" also could make a good, defendable base surrounded by water on 3 sides, easy to locate if you get lost, and easy to get back to if you get killed and re-spawn. Frequency: 0.89%

Minecraft PE 'snow taiga' insta-seed
Snow Taiga

Biome. Snow covered spruce forest. Usually appears with snow plains, but of a typical snowy region only a small portion (roughly 22%) is spruce forest. Frequency: 0.76% (0.73%)

Minecraft PE 'stronghold' insta-seed
Stronghold

Feature. Not technically an insta-seed as you can't immediately see it upon spawn, though you can see the host village above it. While it's near impossible to write a robo-script to check for strongholds in each world, I can definitely take advantage of the robotically-found village insta-seeds to narrow the search, then manually check each seed. Because the eye of ender is not yet implemented, the Minecraft PE developers chose to put strongholds directly under the well in some villages. The frequency, however, is rumored to be 1 in 100, which is disappointingly rare (for example, my wife and I spent a year exploring about 33,000 square meters of a world in survival world and found about ten villages... which is one tenth the number needed to find ONE stronghold!). So... using published seeds on the web may be the only practical way to enjoy finding a stronghold at this time. NOTE: Find the village well, fill it with sand, then dig directly down to find the stronghold. Frequency: 0.045%

Frequency: Percent appearance in insta-seeds. Number in parentheses is percent of land area of typical world. Sometimes the numbers vary... for example, plains is only 10% of total land area, but plains biomes tend to be smaller and are mixed in next to other biomes. Additionally, most Insta-Seeds show more than one biome. So this is why plains shows up in one third of all Insta-Seeds.

Special thanks to KeepOnDigging and AntOfThy for their work on analyzing 1.0 trillion square meters of generated Minecraft terrain for land area frequency. (This analysis is for the PC edition, but we assume the frequencies are the same for the Pocket Edition.)
